Does brunch really get any better than giant belgian waffles? I’m pretty obsessed with these – they are big and can easily be cut into quarters and shared family style, although I have a hard time not polishing off one myself (no shame!). These guys are your friends on lazy weekends when all you want to do is stay inside in slippers but they also freeze well if you need an extra special treat on a weekday or feel like having an extra lazy weekend without breaking out the waffle iron.
You already know that I love chia jam – it’s so easy and has none of the sugars and preservatives like most of the stuff you’ll find in the store. This version is more like a sauce and takes the place of maple syrup all together. It’s so good I’ve found a way to incorporate it into every breakfast this week… on top of coconut yogurt, chia puddings, overnight oats, and even as smoothie topping.
As a bonus, these waffles are packed with good-for-you grains in the form of gluten free oats. Add in another nutrition punch by swapping out some of the oat flour with a hearty gluten free flour like buckwheat or sorghum.
It’s going to be a long time before I ever let my waffle iron get dusty again!
